Each year during the Thanksgiving holiday, we tend to contemplate all that we are thankful for, such as the birth of a baby in the family, an exciting career move with increased income, a new car, recovery from an illness, and so on. I’ve realized over the years that my expressions of gratitude tend to raise thoughts of very meaningful and fulfilling experiences, which never fail to bring a smile to my face, warm my heartstrings and produce happiness the moment I recall them.
One of the truths I have learned is what I focus on is what I manifest and attain in my life. I’ve developed a practice of expressing gratitude every day throughout the year for the joy in my life, the love I give and receive, my family and friends, my good health, the fact that I can live this life, and for all else that serves me well. I’ve found that as my mind has transitioned into this positive way of thinking, so has my reality. A daily practice of giving thanks for what serves you big or small will increase the probability of positive things manifesting for you.
I believe it’s imperative to surround yourself with uplifting people that have only the best intentions, as this will reduce a great deal of unnecessary stress caused by negativity. Too often we are concerned about what others think of us, instead of being authentic and concentrating on becoming the best version of ourselves. When we radiate love and joy, we discover it’s contagious and that we attract more of the same into our lives.
The truth is simple: Change Your Focus, Change Your Life.
